Who Do You Think You Are?
27 January 1933 It’s a fair coop!
Three youths from Thornbury appeared in the magistrates’ court after being caught trying to steal four hens. Police Constable Greenslade told the bench that he’d caught them after following “a trail of feathers and footprints”, according to the Western Daily Press. Despite their fowl deed, the magistrate heard that the three young men – Lloyd Clutterbuck, Charles Smith and Frank Holpis – were otherwise of good character, so they were placed on probation.
